Dropping his nostalgia-filled alt-pop EP today is Thirsk-hailed singer-songwriter Aidan Tulloch with “Somewhere Without Lights”. The emotive and honest five-track EP dives into the artist’s past, as he recollects his gritty Yorkshire youth over euphoric guitar riffs and heady bass lines. Standout tune “Somewhere Without Lights” brings the whole EP together, with melodic cinematic pianos and organic textures bringing the record to a peaceful end.
Speaking on the EP, the singer-songwriter said: “As a fan, I’ve noticed the beautiful effect that music can have on people in terms of euphoria, comfort, intensity, and depth. I’m at a stage now where I want to create that for other people. Sometimes everything just seems banal, stagnant, stuck, and I want to create musical and poetic environments to feel released from that.”
Inspired by the likes of The National and Kiasmos, Aidan Tulloch has been creating infectious alt-pop for a while now, and this EP is an opener into the singer’s refreshingly authentic sound.
